If the Jets sign Asomugha, even to a huge deal that would make him the highest-paid defensive player, it is the right thing to do.
Yes, even with Revis.
As the Packers showed on their run to the Super Bowl victory, when you have great cover players in the back end, there are so many things you can do on defense that will make your unit tough to beat.
If Asomugha were to join Revis, with second-year player Kyle Wilson as the third corner, the Jets will be able to do whatever they want on the back end. They will have two premier man-cover corners in a league where most teams don't have one.
The Packers had two premier cover players last season in Tramon Williams and Charles Woodson. They also had a young player like Wilson in Sam Shields who showed he was more than capable of playing man-to-man in the secondary.
With Woodson and Williams blanketing receivers, and Shields contributing with this raw speed, the Packers locked down their opponents in the postseason run.
This is a passing league now. Corners are more valuable than ever.
Asomugha to the Jets would be a great move for Rex Ryan and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine.
